Before the Rain

Gray days are following one on the other, though today brought a few minutes of sunlight now and then. It is only partly cloudy right now, but the great mass of clouds that will bring rain tomorrow is already approaching. The sky will be cloudy by the time the half moon rises, so I won't see it tonight.

I never got around to getting my piles of leaves into the wheelie bins, and there probably won't be time tomorrow morning before the rain starts falling, so I'll be stuck with loads of wet leaves which are very unpleasant to deal with. They'll have three days to dry out before I'll have to get the bins out on Monday evening, but in such chilly weather I don't know if that will be enough.

There were other things I didn't get around to today. My energy level has been unusually low recently, and there have been more and more random aches and pains to aggravate the situation. All that raking I've done might have something to do with it, and my generally crappy diet probably isn't helping. It's a difficult time of year to cut back on pie and cookies, though.

I'll try to arrange to go shopping on Friday again this week, as more rain is expected on Sunday and I'd rather not go out in it. The stores are especially zoo-like on Fridays this time of year, but putting up with the crowds and staying dry is better than getting soggy on a cold day just to put up with slightly smaller crowds. Of course there's no guarantee I'll even survive until Friday. My energy might get so low that I'll just go into a terminal coma.

It would be quite annoying to end up dead right now, as if I do I could have skipped all that raking. Raking leaves is a real waste of time if you're not going to be around much longer. Time I could have spent on the Internets, for example. Oh, wait. Right. Never mind.
